The style show is free and open to the public, and boxed lunches will be
available for a $5 donation to the Bras Ending Breast Cancer campaign.
The Bras Ending Breast Cancer project is an opportunity for the community,
local businesses and organizations to design/decorate bras and raise awareness
about breast cancer. All proceeds from the project are used to fund screening
mammograms for indigent women.
Last year's event raised enough funds to help 26 indigent women receive
this much-needed preventive care. Since its inception, the Bras Ending
Breast Cancer campaign has provided mammograms for more than 280 women.
Knapp will be accepting completed designs with entry forms on Thursday,
October 1 from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. at the Knapp Medical Center Information Desk.
As part of the annual Bras Ending Breast Cancer event, the community is
